Born a rock band that explores the dark as well as the light, LOVE LOVE grew from a shared love of murder ballads. Songwriting partners Chris Toppin and Jefferson Riordan offer dual lead vocals, poignant, sometimes macabre lyrics, psych-country-soul overtones, groove, and grace. The band has gone through multiple iterations since the two began writing together in the summer of 2013, but the straight line through has always been their voices. They are voices that belong together, that have been searching for each other for a lifetime. LOVE LOVE’s debut album was released in May of 2015, their follow-up, Picture, in May of 2018, and an EP is due Spring 2019. They have received much critical praise. Of their first album, Jeff Burger of No Depression writes, “This eponymous album ranks among the most auspicious debuts I’ve heard so far this year…a lush, complex sound.” Love Love makes music from the heart, that is both adventurous and honest.
